Yes. And there was a reason for that Moog, mate. The song was both autobiographical and a tribute to his sister. Watching the video back in 1983, it told a story that I figured had a deeper meaning than what met the eye. I learned later that his sister Rene gave Ray Davies his first guitar. She had a rheumatic heart and passed away that night. He was 13 and had been begging his parents for that particular guitar for a while.
Wow. Hadn't heard that story. That's heart rending.
